Twistlock Barrel Slop: Causes and how to fix it?
As the thread title states, my Mag is developing a bit of slop in the barrel which I can only assume will have a negative impact on my accuracy. I've tried all three barrels I own and all three have the same bit of wiggle.
I know old o-rings can cause the barrel to develop some play, as can problems with the locking pin in the body. Is there anything else that can cause this?

New barrel orings. You can also try to put some tape under them to make everything fit snugger. You might have trouble getting the barrel off though.
This is one of those "perceived" problems... Im not sure how much truth there is to the whole "Barrel slop makes my mag inaccurate" myth. My old twist lock guns were pretty darn balls-on.

I changed Orings and that made a world of difference. Almost couldn't get the barrel to go in until I lightly greased the Orings with some Dow33. I also ended up lightly flaring the inside corner at the front of the body so it tends to wedge the Orings down instead of pushing them back and trying to cut them off.
I had a "Paintball God" moment once.
Like Al Bundy's Polk High football moment I live on
for the slim chance of repeating that one time
miracle in some small way.........
